The purpose of this study is the design of a biosensor taking into account the needs, the existing parameters and the environmental constraints in various ecosystems. Real time measurements from such biosensor could lead to reliable decisions about the status of an ecosystem. Two different approaches are presented in this paper. The first is a knowledge-based approach aimed to create an information tool suitable for measuring the critical parameters of a specific ecosystem. The second is an analytical development approach of the construction of a horseradish biosensor for peroxide detection.
